Hi! I just joined this team, but have been on spark awhile now! I'm also trying to get the Portland Sparkers team up and running that sparkpeople created.

I have volunteered to run it so if you live in or around the Portland metro area, come join us! Well me...seems like a lot of people are shy!

Good Morning

My name is Lynn, I live outside Junction City,in the middle of grass seed country, very busy and dusty now. I am a native Oregonian. All children have grown and gone and we seem to have replaced them with dogs and cats. We do have 3 granddaughters and a grandson due next month. I am an avid KNITTER,
love it. I have 50-60 lbs to lose and exercising is very hard for me. I do work out in my gardens and lawn. Alot of outdoor stuff. I would love to join your group, does anyone live near me?? Maybe can get a walking group together?
Thanks
Lynn

Another newbie!

DH and I both grew up in Oregon. We left for a few years to live in Colorado, but moved back to Corvallis a couple of years ago. During the winter I do miss the Colorado sunshine, but Corvallis is a great fit for us too, and is a good deal closer to family and friends.

The great weather we've had recently is really cheering me up. I went for a 20 minute walk today, and I have a 20 - 35 mile bike ride planned with some friends tomorrow. It's hard to find the time to get outside and do something active, but with weather like this it would be a crime not to get out to enjoy it!

Hi there. My name is Sharon and I live in Canby. I am almost 65....Feb 23. Just signed up for my Social Security. I am an office manager in a Portland bag company. I have 5 children, 8 grand children and 2 great grandchildren. We are a close family and all live in either Canby,West Linn and Gladstone. I am married (47 years). My husband is retired. My hobbies are reading and making cards (rubber stamping). One of my daughters sells Close to My Heart stamping and scrapbooking products, therefore I got into this hobby to help encourage her. We are very active in our church.
My daughter recently lost 45 pounds and this has inspired me to do the same. I have had two serious back surgeries and am searching for exercises I can do with the back pain I live with. Still searching.
I was born and raised in California, but have been in Oregon for 38 years. We love it here. Especially in Canby.
Hope to get to know some of you through this team. All encouragement welcome.

Hi...I was born in Salem, but spent much of my time in either Portland or Keizer area's. I am in the Navy and currently stationed in Sasebo Japan working as a Hospital Corpsman. I will get kicked out of the military if I dont stay within a certain weight and I am about 15 over that...and I'd like to lose more than that. I just got married last year and then had a baby this last December...so I really need to get back into shape fast! I could use some good ol' Oregon support and motivation!

My first goal:
175 by March 1st

Second Goal:
165 by March 18th

Third goal:
155 by May 1stth

Final goal:

Hello All!

Hi everyone. My name is Julie and DH and I are from the Pendleton area. I have 4 kids ages 8,6,3, and 7 months. We love to go camping, hunting, fishing and we love to garden and preserve food as a family.

I grew up on a ranch and currently live in a small town near Pendleton but would love to someday provide my kids with a more country lifestyle. For now we just had to bring the country to us in the form of backyard chickens and a large garden.

This site sure is fun, positive and a huge help to me!! Julie

Hi Molly -- Welcome to the group -- I tried to check out your myspace, but it was set to private. Be encouraged, little steps make equal a big leap eventually. Ive been trying to focus on setting small goals. In the past I just jumped in and said, Im gonna diet and exercise -- Of ourse, I always fell out of that mode cause I never really had a plan. Even if you only write one thing down, do that and you will see yourself achieve it - I encourage you, and really anyone, to check out the SP motivational information -- it is really helpful.

Hi,

I live in SE Portland (S Tabor area). I've been on Sparkpeople for a few months, just kind of mosey-ing along, but now have decided to get serious. I've just signed up for training to walk the Portland Marathon in Oct. I'm coming from nearly couch potato status, so it may not be possible this year, but I'm going to give it a good effort.

I stay busy with work, church music, handbells, and trying to keep the house somewhat presentable (probably the biggest challenge!).

Hello,
My name is Andrea; I live in Beaverton (Tanasbourne area) with my husband and two cats.

Age and quitting smoking have conspired to make me fat (I have no responsibility here whatsoever ; ) and I have re-committed to this weight-loss thang after long hiatus. I'm excited to meet some local folks with whom to share the struggle!

Hi -

I live in the Medford area. I have two kids a boy (4) and a girl (2). Sad to say, I'm still trying to lose the last of the baby weight, although now that she's 2, not sure I can still blame that. emoticon Although, having kids after 35 is a bit tough on the body!

Like most, there has been a lot of stressful things that I blame and I have had a few health issue which keep me from excercising much. Not much I can do with my back problems, but hopefully I'm on the road to getting that under control and can at least start walking again. I use to walk a lot.

Well, hope to get to know you and get (maybe even give) some great inspiration and motivation.

Renee in OR

Hey, there
My name is Janet, I just turned 49 and am now panicked because I want to be in the best health and shape I can be by 50. It sounds so much older than I feel! I live with my husband and 3 cats in North Portland (yes, it's a nice community!). I have a trainer at the 24 hr fitness gym I go to and have seen some good results. It's certainly a lot slower than it was 10 years ago to get into shape. Oh well....

Hi Karen and welcome to the group! Glad to have you with us and looking forward to getting to know you better.

Good luck on your journey!

Willow: here you are! emoticon

Polish: wytrwalosc (SP doesn't display Polish characters.. the "l" "s" "c" all have accent marks)
the "y" should sound like i in machine but with tongue as far back in your throat as possible. pronounced something like: vi-TRVA-ehw-oshch)

French: persévérance

Italian: perseveranza

Spanish: perseverancia

German: Beharrlichkeit, Ausdauer

Norwegian: utholdenhet (I presume Danish wil be similar, or idenitical as Norwegian is derived from it).

Dutch: volhardig

Ukrainian: zavzyattya

Russian: uporstvo (pronounced - ooPORRstva), nastojchivost' (pronounced - nasTOYcheevost' the t' should sound like the t in "stew").

I doubt SP supports the Russian and Ukrainian fonts so they're transliterated in to latin letters.
Phonetics aren't my strongest point, but if I'll find a good transcription I'll edit them in later.

Of course I'm not learning all of these, some I already speak fluently. There would never be enough hours in the day to do all of them. emoticon

Thank you Gotoagoal(Janis)for getting this welcome thread going.

Hello to everyone, newcomers and not so newcomers. Kids are back in school and now I really want to say hello and shake a few few virtual hands...

Lisa (starbellysneech): Ah, another beagle person. You've probably found that there are a few fellow beagle folk on this team. Awesome on the weight loss and even more so on the maintenance. (reverent bow)

Mandy (mandybaker1): I hope you are finding the food tracker tool helpful, and that life is stabilizing for you. (give a scritch to your pups for me?)

Kim (kimplus2): Wow, you and your loved ones have been through a lot. And you have a lot to live for and and stay excited about. Right on! You are not alone.(((hugs)))

Jeana (nworegongirl):I love the photo of you in the great wide open. Here's to 2007!

Jenna(missjennah): Best wishes on the job search. You'll find lots of stuff to love on SparkPeople.

Jory (heartintent): I'm not too far away from SE Portland, if you're interested in local accountability buddies at any point. I'm also pursuing a lifestyle that balances natural alternatives with western medical medicine. They both have their values and drawbacks. It's a lifetime learning process. I could go on all day about it...

Mary (mdeeter): I can tell you're a real go-getter! I love your energy. The sunset picture with your sweetheart is quite lovely.

Keith (dalydaly):Howdy from the gorge, neighbor. Hm, 40 pounds to lose. Focus, attention, motivation. Great attitude, great location, great pets, great internal and cyber support...You can do it!

Marianna (gwiazdka): I saw on your sparkpage that you're learning foreign languages. I'd love to learn the word and pronunciation for "perserverence" in the languages you're studying. I dabble in some Asian languages. I'll share mine if you share yours?....

See y'all around the team message boards,
Willow

Hi everyone.. I joined a few days ago but my first spare moment to post.

I'm Marianna, I'm 31 y.o and live in Eugene with my husband and 2 dogs. I have a huge amount of pounds to lose but with perseverence and a swift kick in the rear end when I start to veer off track, I can do it.

Looking forward to getting to know all of you better. Good luck with your goals!

Hi there --

Im Jory, 45, and live in SE Portland with my two teenaged daughters and our cats. I NEED to lose at least 50 lbs. to be on a "healthy me" kinda track and WANT to lose the weight so the next time I go on a cruise, I dont feel "rolly polly."

Favorite things I like include camping trips, beach trips, building/maintaining webpages for my daughter's sports activities, attending daughters sports (dance/basketball at present) activities, listening to music, working around the house or in the yard, etc. I am also interested in learning more about natural alternatives to medicine (currently reading "The Seven Pillars of Health" by Don Colbert - Very interesting!).

My exercise regime (when I use them, operative words) consists mostly of riding my recumbent bike, treadmill, exercise videos, stability ball, and now a bosu ball.

Would love to have some accountability buddies in the area.

Hello everyone. My name is jenna and I am currently 20 years old. I am currently living in a small town in the gorge as well as vancouver washington. I'm sure you're asking, how does she live in two places? Well, I am currently living with my folks and little brother on work days because I work in hood river for the local phone company. On my days off I stay with my boyfriend in vancouver. Soon I'll be living there full time, but we still have stuff to do to the apartment. Anyways, I can't think of anything else to say, but if you have questions, feel free to ask :)

Hello fellow Oregonians! My name is Kim and I live in Roseburg with my husband and 2 children ages 5 and 2. I've finally made the committment to lose all this weight. After having kids at 40 and 43, losing my dad to cancer, my mom being diagnosed with cancer and my husband having open heart surgery, I gained a ton of weight. Now it's time to work hard and get fit and healthy for me and my kids. I am here to be supportive and hope to find support from others going through the same thing. We can do this!!! Let's keep focused and uplift one another.
Look forward to getting to know you!
Kim

My name is Mandy I moved up to Oregon from California and love it here. It's kinda hard to make friends that you can trust. I am married and have four beautiful pups. I lost my job and it really started me on this eating frenzy, now its all about trying to exercise it off. So hopefully I can make some friends and shed some of those donuts!

Life ain't always beautiful but its a beautiful ride!

Hello Everyone!

I am Lisa, a.k.a starbellysneech. I live in Portland with my significant other and our beagle Pepper. About 4 years ago I lost 60 lbs and have remained at a relatively steady weight ever since! I would like to loose the "last 20" or so for many reasons.

My job involves health education and I love it! I work with great people and am very lucky.

I love to hike with the dog, knit, read, see movies, but my favorite thing of all is my workout DVD collection! It really keeps me motivated to keep moving.

So who else is lurking out there? emoticon

One step back, two steps forward!
